In every major European invasion of the war, a force of volunteers on specialized duty that their own government projected would have a 50 percent casualty rate, led the way. Joining us for the first time, veteran journalist and New York Times bestselling author Scott McGaugh will discuss the story behind his upcoming release Brotherhood of the Flying Coffin: The Glider Pilots of World War II. His other books include the Civil War biography Surgeon in Blue, and Honor Before Glory, which takes readers on a riveting rescue mission by Japanese American soldiers and is in film development.
